This is a good reference book for the intermediate-level Linux (Ubuntu or, to a lesser degree, Debian) user. It has a lot of neat tips and tricks in it, and should be read through at least once and then kept close at hand for those late night spontaneous "I wonder how I could do this...."
Another good Ubuntu book.
